Join BVA for a General Aviation Fly-In featuring Portland, ME (KPWM); Bangor ME (KBGR); and Portsmouth, NH (KPSM).
It’s a great time to try out a WINGS flights too. Many flights have published Alternate Airports, allowing you to earn your BVA pilot ratings at event airports!
Set the parking brake on the airliner and knock the cobwebs off your favorite general aviation aircraft! The General Aviation Fly-In visits locales across the country that are famous for their scenery and general aviation influence. While anything from a single engine Cessna to a regional jet is welcome in this event, low and slow offers the best opportunity to experience the scenery.
During the event, local air traffic control is staffed at smaller Class C and D airports, with overlying radar controllers to provide VFR Flight Following and IFR services. Fly VFR closed traffic, practice instrument approaches, or fly VFR or IFR between the featured airports: the choice is yours.
This week's event features Portland (KPWM), Bangor (KBGR), and Portsmouth (KPSM) airports along the coast. Enjoy the frosted coastlines of Maine, and the scenic Casco bay while making the short jaunt between both cities. Maybe even stopover in Bar Harbor for a warm bowl of clam chowder and a lobster roll.
It’s also a great time to try out one of our WINGS flights. Remember, many of the flights have published Alternate Airports, allowing you to earn your BVA pilot ratings at event airports!
